Day 25- I am grateful for the help of my husband and daughter as I recover from oral surgery. As I get older, the length of my recovery seems longer. I realize how fortunate I am to have people near to help me.
Day 26- Thanksgiving is today in America. This holiday is about reflecting on what is good about your life. However, I think about the Indigenous people who lost their land. The Kizh (pronounced Keech) Nation had this land where I live now. If you live in California, there is a website called native-land.ca that shows you the history of the land where you put your feet in California.
Day 27- I am grateful for direct deposit. Which also makes me thankful for my husband’s income which provides for our family. I am thankful he has had a job during this pandemic.
Day 28- I am grateful for companies who provide drive-up service and/or delivery. I tried to walk through a store today. It was the first time since my surgery that I have been outside. Unfortunately, I felt like I was about to pass out in the store. So we left. I ordered on line and we came back a few hours later for our things. I used to think people were lazy who used this service. I now realized it is necessary for so many reason and I don’t need to be judgmental if someone needs to pick up something from the store and they prefer to stay inside their car. Lesson learned.
